The Russian DTH platform Raduga TV, which ceased operations at the end of last year, has made the migration of its former subscribers to the new MTS TV platform more favourable.

Satkurier reports that they will be offered more channels at a lower price, with the only requirement being to change their receiver and sign a new agreement. The deadline for this new offer is May 31, 2015.

Raduga TV, which was 50%-owned by Modern Times Group (MTG), closed after failing to secure a licence.

It employed the 75 degrees East orbital position, which is also used by MTS TV.

Raduga TVís former subscribers have the option of paying R4,500 (Ä68.7) for a HD receiver and an annual subscription to MTS TV or R3,500 for a CAM module and annual subscription to MTS TV.
